Victor Osimhen is expected to be hot property across Europe in the next transfer window but Chelsea fans reading too much into reports from France around a big-money bid for the Lille striker may need to temper their excitement.

The Blues have watched the Nigeria striker closely and are impressed but Lille's asking price of €85million remains too high.

Last week, French media suggested that an unnamed club had bid £75million for the 21-year-old and since then there have been further insinuations that the club was Chelsea.

Frank Lampard has previously said that Osimhen has "everything in his game" but reports of a £75million offer from Stamford Bridge appear wide of the mark.
